All change at Kronos Quartet

All change at Kronos Quartet

Janet Cowperthwaite, who has managed the pioneering group for 43 years is stepping aside:

‘When I first met Kronos in 1981, I was a college student. I could not have imagined the amazing world that would unfold. It has been a privilege and honor to work with Kronos, one of the most important, creative forces of our time. They are incredible musicians and I have always been grateful for their trust and friendship. I have deeply valued the talented and committed KPAA staff, past and present – without which none of the successes would have been possible – and our Board of Directors, a steadfast foundation of support over the years. Our collective efforts have brought a lot of wonderful music into the world.’

The picture is just as I remember them on first acquaintance, four decades ago.
